I bought a G53 Xplained Pro eval kit a while ago and everything worked fine. I sent it to a guy who works for me and bought another one for myself. When I plugged in the new one, nothing happened. By that I mean AS6 didn't do what it did with the old one - recognize it and offer to immediately let me work with the eval kit.
I've tried everything: reinstalling AS6.2, updating the ASF (I know this has nothing to do with it, but still), reinstalling Atmel USB drivers (I downloaded the installer from the Atmel Gallery), and trying it on various USB ports. I have no idea what to do next.
In device manager, the dev kit device is listed as "AT32UC3A3" under "Atmel USB Devices." I never looked at it when I had the first dev kit, so I don't know if this is different than it was before, but I did search the forums and it appears that the device should be bifurcated into an EDBG device and something else.
I tried updating the driver by pointing specifically to the Atmel USB driver directory, but it said it found the most recent driver, which identified the device as AT32UC3A3 again.
I'm at the end of my rope and I don't know what to do. This is halting progress on a product release and Atmel support hasn't responded yet. Please let me know if you have any ideas.
